From PETA:

PETA has launched a limited-edition sheet of U.S. postage PhotoStampsTM featuring famous vegetarians throughout history. The VIPs featured on these unique postage sheets ditched meat from their diets either out of concern for their health, for the environment, or for animals—and our world would not be the same without their accomplishments.

Pick up this limited edition collectible PhotoStampsTM sheet at for yourself, or grab some to give as gifts. This postage will be available for a short time only, so get yours before they sell out.
